Merry Christmas

Its only one week until we celebrate the birth of Jesus.  What a wonderful time of the year!  With the busyness of the holidays, lets not forget why we have Christmas.  Its not because of Santa Claus, or getting and giving of gifts.   Its because of Jesus!

Luke 2: 11-12

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
 12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

I came across this song that I just loved this Christmas season... 

Do you have room for Jesus?  If not make room for him.

Have a great Christmas!

Joys of Homeschooling

I can say without a doubt that this is the best year we have had in our schooling adventure. 
The year is not over yet... but this has been a stress free and enjoyable school year.

Why is that, I wonder?

Less Distractions 

One reason I believe is, is that I don't have any  other children to take care of during our school year.
I can force more on  the challenges of each school day without outside distractions.

It could be that we have finally found our "grove", but from every 
magazine article  I have read ... distractions are one of the most difficulties many HS face.

I am more Organized

Organization is the key! 

We are having fun!

When you make learning fun, I can say that you are going to enjoy teaching more and your 
children will enjoy learning more!

How is your school year going?

Where has the time gone?

Wow, I just realized that I have not posted anything in a few weeks.  I have been busy with Christmas sewing, homeschooling, and wifely duties.  

I am so proud of myself!  I have made all of my sisters, sister in laws, and my mother's Christmas gifts this year. They are very cute and I pray they enjoy them as much as I did making them.  Janelle and Kalyn have enjoyed helping with the ironing, sewing, and wrapping of each gift.  There is nothing like team work!

As we are coming to a close  in our schooling for the holidays, I have done a review of where each girl is at in her subjects.  I can say that I am very pleased with each of their progress this semester.   They are working very hard and it shows ! Way to go girls!!!

My husband has been very busy. ... (this is of course his busy time of the year, with it being deer season and  all.) I am not a hunter nor do I like being where their could be a snake or other vermin crawling about, but he has had me drop him off at deer blinds while he was "on the hunt" for a buck.  Let me tell you, driving in complete darkness is totally not fun! I got lost!!!!  I dropped him off one morning and on the way home, nothing looked right, so I whined up at a completely different part of the ranch. Luckily, I knew where I was (after getting there!) and was able to make it home.

My husband finally bagged the buck after a week of playing "hid and seek" with it.  He called me so excited and asked for me to come  get him (  and DON'T FORGET YOUR CAMERA).  I show up in my sleepers of all things... thinking that he could just take a picture and I can stay in the truck.... WRONG... I had to get out and take pictures.  I told my husband that I now need ranch shoes! I was so scared that some critter would crawl up and my poor feet would be bite..  That being said, I am now the proud owner of hiking/ ranch boots!

Here is one of the pictures I so bravely took!  Hey, after all, I had to walk in the brush with all but sleepers on!

Just yesterday, he bagged two doe!  Can you see what my future holds?

Scripture of the Month

1 Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
